Ko ngā tae i tāmokongia ki te Kahu Tōpuni o Tuperiri

About the project

Introducing the Resene x NWŌ Color Palette and also Resene's first iwi collaboration, Ko ngā tae i tāmokongia ki te Kahu Tōpuni o Tuperiri. Ko ngā tae i tāmokongia ki te Kahu Tōpuni o Tuperiri represents a fusion of Resene's expertise in colour design with the stunning landscapes and some of the special features within Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei. Each color has been carefully derived from these beautiful areas and named accordingly to reflect the place of which it depicts. From the warm, earthy tones inspired by sacred lands to the cool, tranquil blues reminiscent of the surrounding ocean, this palette tells a powerful story that encompasses generations of whakapapa and Whātuatanga.

The Launch

We launched "Ko ngā tae i tāmokongia ki te Kahu Tōpuni o Tuperiri" in May 2023. We first started developing the palette back in 2021, asking whānau what colours best reflect the iwi, our taiao and our whenua. Reo Māori expert Matua Ropata Paora named the 52 shades in the palette, all ingoa Māori.
To mark the launch, our kaumātua and tamariki were able to test the paints on a print created by our very own Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei creative, Hana Maihi.
